Edison Demonstration of Smallsat Networks (EDSN)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Edison Demonstration of Smallsat Networks

The EDSN mission was to launch and deploy a swarm of 8 CubeSats into a loose formation approximately 500 km above Earth. The EDSN CubeSats swarm would have collected multipoint satellite data and transmitted the data to the ground through one CubeSat by utilizing cross-link communications between the spacecraft. The EDSN mission was lost with Super Strypi launch vehicle failure (ORS-4) on November 3, 2015. The Nodes mission later achieved many of the EDSN objectives.
